Since the holidays are approaching quickly I need to start gathering gifts for family and friends. I also need some beauty inspiration for parties and get togethers. Lately I have been looking through Marie Claire for gift and beauty ideas since they have so many. I wanted to share some of the ideas that I saw that I would recommend as well as a beauty look I recreated!
This issue is packed with tons of gift ideas for everyone! In the issue there are different gift guides for different topics such as “Under $100”, “Luxe for Less”, and others. My favorite gift ideas came from the “Under $100” section that you can see below. I am so into red tones lately and this page was screaming at me! I like to get my Mother clothes for Christmas because she never has time to shop and this page gave me some outfit ideas! Another section I really liked was on page 136 and it showe4d a bunch of fun and techy gifts. Some recommendations were the Polaroid Snap Instant Camera (which I would LOVE if anyone wants to buy me anything), Punk Rock Authors Coaster Set, UE Boom Speakers, and more!
I also love looking through Marie Claire for beauty look inspiration, especially with the holiday season coming up. I LOVED the look on the front cover with Amber Heard so I decided to recreate it on myself. This look is completely new for me because I always wear a dark thick cat eye, which this look does not have. I bronzed up my eyes and used some dark shadows to line my bottom lash line a little. I skipped the heavy eyeliner and just tightlined my lash line with a dark brown eye pencil. I then added a few coats of mascara to make my lashes longer and fuller. I added some peachy coral colors to my cheeks and added a soft rose lippie to complete my look. What do you think?! Marie Claire always has great up to date beauty trends and makeup looks that I love to recreate!
